+.Nm revoke
+.Nd revoke file access
+.Sh SYNOPSIS
+.Ft int
+.Fn revoke "char *path"
+.Sh DESCRIPTION
+The
+.Nm revoke
+function invalidates all current open file descriptors in the system
+for the file named by
+.Fa path .
+Subsequent operations on any such descriptors
+fail, with the exceptions that a
+.Fn read
+from a character device file which has been revoked
+returns a count of zero (end of file),
+and a
+.Fn close
+call will succeed.
+If the file is a special file for a device which is open,
+the device close function
+is called as if all open references to the file had been closed.
+.Pp
+Access to a file may be revoked only by its owner or the super user.
+The
+.Nm revoke
+function is currently supported only for block and character special
+device files.
+It is normally used to prepare a terminal device for a new login session,
+preventing any access by a previous user of the terminal.
+.Sh RETURN VALUES
+A 0 value indicated that the call succeeded. A \-1 return value
+indicates an error occurred and
+.Va errno
+is set to indicated the reason.
+.Sh ERRORS
+Access to the named file is revoked unless one of the following:
+.Bl -tag -width Er
+.It Bq Er ENOTDIR
+A component of the path prefix is not a directory.
+.It Bq Er ENAMETOOLONG
+A component of a pathname exceeded 255 characters,
+or an entire path name exceeded 1024 characters.
+.It Bq Er ENOENT
+The named file or a component of the path name does not exist.
+.It Bq Er EACCES
+Search permission is denied for a component of the path prefix.
+.It Bq Er ELOOP
+Too many symbolic links were encountered in translating the pathname.
+.It Bq Er EFAULT
+.Fa Path
+points outside the process's allocated address space.
+.It Bq Er EINVAL
+The named file is neither a character special or block
+special file.
+.It Bq Er EPERM
+The caller is neither the owner of the file nor the super user.
